From the calculations (and from the enthalpy data posted by Karl, reference here), the following can be calculated: Enthalpy of solution of glucose in the mixture, given by $$\Delta H_\text{glucose} = \frac{52}{100} \times 14.85 \times \frac 1 {180} \times 11000 = \pu{471.9 J}$$ Enthalpy of solution of sucrose in the mixture, given by $$\Delta H_\text{...

Well, the solution enthalpy of sugars is positive. I found these numbers on the internet $\ce{C12H22O11}$ (sugar(sucrose)) : 5.4 kJ/mol $\ce{C6H12O6}$ (glucose) : 11 kJ/mol $\ce{C6H12O6·H2O}$ (glucose monohydrate) : 19 kJ/mol So if your "energy drink" is a dry powder (and not a readymade drink in an aluminum can), this could explain your observation. You ...

Amway makes a product called L.O.C. It is somewhat of a detergent, However, it has been sold as a product that "makes water, wetter". It has been added (as I have been told) to chemicals in crop dusters. It allows the chemicals to spread over the leaves, giving greater surface area of coverage because of loss of surface tension. Product: L.O.C.™ Multi-...

There are two types of erasable pens: rubber cement and thermochromic pens. Thermochromic pens are much more popular nowadays because rubber cement pens literally harden like cement, and can't be erased after a few hours. Thermochromic pens, however, use heat from friction that makes the ink invisible; not exactly removing it from the paper, but close enough....

Fibres are made of long linear molecules, in which the atoms are bound by covalences C-C or C-O. Usually it is a long C-C-C-C-C-C-O-C-C-C, with one O from time to time. Such bonds are hard to break. But paralleled fibres are hold together by van der Wals forces, which are rather weak. They are not difficult to get separated. That is why a fiber can be ...

Family is an informal term. Only a group and a period is an accepted terminology for the periodic table by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, a widely respected authority on chemical nomenclature and terminology. The Wiki page of periodic table should be modified because a dubious and layman type reference (www.shmoop.com) for group (= ...

A possible answer is n-octane, (image credit) for what it consists of linear organic molecules (vide infra) has a boiling point of about $125\,\pu{^\circ{}C}$ / $257\,\pu{^\circ{}F}$ is a hydrocarbon you either find in, or generate from natural oil A bit on the n in n-octane: This is a shorthand for normal, because the carbon atoms are consecutively ...

Thanks for this question, as poor quality memory foam mattresses likely pose a significant health risk in certain locale. Per Wikipedia on associated hazards of memory foam, to quote: Emissions from memory foam mattresses may directly cause more respiratory irritation than other mattresses. Memory foam, like other polyurethane products, can be ...

I would suggest that perhaps it wasn't the pillow but another issue altogether. If in two days your pillow outgassed enough to saturate the wall and the plywood, a couple days should also be sufficient for those to also release any trapped gasses. As I doubt they have any properties better at trapping gases than the foam in your former pillow. Just a ...

According to a relevant reference (Ref.1) Following reactions happen when sodium hypochlorite and sodium dichloro-s-triazinetrione dissolve in water, respectively: $$\ce{NaOCl + H2O -> HOCl + NaOH} \tag {1}$$ $$\ce{NaCl2(NCO)3 + 2 H2O <=> 2 HOCl + NaH2(NCO)3} \tag {1}$$ Hence it is safe to assume that you need only $\pu{0.5 mol}$ of $\ce{NaCl2(...
